FORMULA

Conjecture: a(n) +(-n-3)*a(n-1) +(2*n+1)*a(n-2) +(-n+1)*a(n-3)=0. - R. J. Mathar, Sep 27 2014

a(n) = 3 - (n+1)!. - Michel Marcus, Jun 07 2020

From G. C. Greubel, Jun 07 2020: (Start)

a(n) = 3 - !(n+2) + !(n+1) = 3 - A003422(n+2) + A003422(n+1).

E.g.f.: 3*exp(x) - (3 - 3*x + x^3)/(1-x)^2. (End)
